The Labrador Dog

I really liked Debbie Hughes card and did indeed check out Pinterest for examples, and WOW, such great paper cutting items.  Many way too complicated for a girl like me, but I did take some inspiration.



I wanted to make something more than a heart shape and decided to do an animal shape.  Since I volunteer at an Animal Rescue, I decided to make a Labrador dog.   I found a silhoutte on line and printed it up and used it to make an outline on my card.  Well it was a little more complicated than I thought.  Besides moving parts around, and cutting more and more shapes the glueing was very tricky and got a blob on the top.  It dried pretty good, but kinda ruined the background.   As you can tell I used a lot of hearts, tools, utensils, a bird, Santa and his sleigh, apple, coffee mugs, a bird, a banana, and two puppies!  You name it.  Small stars for his toes. a knife for his tail.


He still looked somewhat hard to figure out, so I ended up adding a bunch of dots to fill in the blank space.     If I look hard enough, it looks like a dog with Botox lips wearing a turleneck and sunglasses.   Or as my sister said, looks like a dog or an ugly cow.   LOL

I normally would list all the supplies here, but I pulled so many dies out I could not figure out which ones I ended up using.   But a lot of them were Memory Box for those who care.


My lamp made it a little bright but I used Kraft cardstock and black cardstock.   I also used a Pico Embellisher in a dark dark navy color for the dots.

Thanks for looking!!!
